. it is not rocket science. it is simple stuff. this is something that -- you talk to manufacturing, manufacturers and it is the number one issue you here. there's a frustration, because the manufacturing community knows we are on the verge of michigan, on the verge of doing something special, but in order to get there, skilled workforce and the innovative work force, productive work force is going to meet the short-term challenges and put their as we think about this, the skills issue is about a short- term fit to a critical problem. but then it is about long-term solutions. if we can get to a place where we have right, innovative, productive, well-trained and educated people in the workforce, that will set manufacturing to continue to compete and grow. this all links together. hopefulething we are we will see move in the coming weeks and months in the senate. we will continue to work with you and try to be a supportive as we can. i look forward to the discussion. >> thank you. >> it is great to be here with you, senator. as i think about the skills gap , i think about science, technology, and ge
believe in science. you often hear the left lecture on science. we are on the side of science. anybody who ignores the obvious point that if you expend more energy than you bring in, you die, whether a business, person, or country. the person who ignores that is against science. in the long run, a country that spends more than it raises cannot continue. it is an existential threat to our country. that was established by economist after economist. common sense confirms it. the federal debt, there's a bigger problem. >> let me quote dick cheney, who said ronald reagan taught us that deficits do not matter. dick cheney was wrong. he was wrong then and now. of course deficits matter, but any one of you who supported the bush plans has no right to speak. i helped bill clinton balance the budget and build a surplus. why? because we had good economic times. in good economic times, you pay down the deficit, but reagan and bush did not, and in bad you have to stimulate in the near term, as thank god president obama is doing. we democrats will balance the budget once again. >> paul, which is more im

kids' education, science and research. they also cut medicaid which affects a lot of those seniors on medicare, about 20% of those seniors are also on medicaid. but it's at the end of that 10-year window that our republican colleagues then move to their voucher plan, premium support, i don't care what you call it. the only way you're going to achieve any savings compared to the baseline numbers, c.b.o. baseline that the chairman showed you, the only way you're going to do it is if you're capping the amount you're going to get so that seniors have to eat the costs and take the risks of rising health care. now, there's a better way to address that issue and that is the way we approach it in our budget and that is to build on the kind of reforms that we made in the affordable care act, in obamacare, which have helped and contributed to reducing the rapid rise in per capita health care costs and which as i pointed out earlier our republican colleagues included in their own budget. so, yes, we have to deal with these drivers of costs, including health care. but the way we propose to do

editor dr. richard besser is here to tell us more. i know there's a lot of complicated science but can you break it down and explain how it works. >> this is pretty incredible. using a patient's own immune system to fight cancer. take a look at this animation. they had five patients with untreatable cancer. they used a virus to inject genetic material into a patient's own white cells to turn them into cancer fighters. those then went out in the body and destroyed all the cancer cells. these patients, they all went into remission. three of them had bone marrow transplants and are doing great. >> we didn't realize one of the patients, our own david aponte, our sound man, we spent time with him and it's incredible. >> yeah, i spoke with david the other day, and, you know, he credits this with saving his life. last summer he had had lots of chemotherapy. he thought he was in remission and his cancer bounced back. there was nothing left for him to do. he had this treatment. they injected the cells. overwhelming reaction in his body, eight days later not one cancer cell could be found. he ha
science and engineering. they saw the fruit of that exercise. it was large in everyday papers. you can take that talent and apply it to something worthy. >> do you think it's fair to say that the push to the moon, the interest in nasa all in some way led to the computer and information revolution? >> there are people who say that would have happened anyway, but certain facts undeniable. the urge to miniaturize electronics did not exist before the space programs. our grandparents had furniture that were radios. nobody said i want to carry that in my pocket. when you launch something into space, electronics of any kind, weight matters because it's very expensive to put every incremental ounce if you don't have to put it there to launch into orbit. the miniaturization of electronics got a jolt of interest by the early space age. and then once you see that it's miniaturized, all of a sudden a whole new world of consumer electronics opens up that was unimagined and undreamt of before. by the way, the urge to find an economic justification, i think, is laudable, but that's not the biggest re

in political science from the university of massachusetts. the doctor's degree is from dartmouth college. doctor, you are invited to take the podium. [applause] >> thank you. i first want to thank the senator for making progress and including me in this important work that they are doing and making that link between looking at lgbt health and hiv and a portal to act. we started off with president obama giving a historic speech speech in 2011 at ending the aids epidemic at some point in our lifetime. this was quite a moment. the moment of opportunity and optimism that i want to start with. the reason the president obama made that statement is because we have a combination that together is something that could turn the tide on epidemics. we also have a national strategy that the white house about a couple of years ago and provides a roadmap. more than a million people are living with hiv in the united states. for the last decade, they have been at the same level and perhaps more alarmingly, you and infections are rising by those who represent 66% of their infections in the united states.
year appropriations bills to h.r. 33. the ones for homeland security, commerce, just t. and science, and agriculture. mr. speaker, these were the bills that passed the house by large margins with bipartisan backing. and are now by the senate reinserted into the c.r. for the balance of the year. and it pleases this member and this chairman that those bills were picked up and certified into the c.r. that we are passing today. this funding will support critical law enforcement agencies, protect our nation's borders and food supplies, and provide important agriculture and rural development investments. we have ensured that critical government services like food and nutrition assistance programs remain available to those who need them most. these updated spending and funding levels will help keep our economy on the path toward recovery, supporting u.s. trade manufacturing, and job creation. in the other departments and agencies covered by the bill, both the house and senate made limited technical changes where absolutely necessary to prevent extensive waste of taxpayer dollars and to avo

unfulfilled. we have forensic science. i'm happy to say that finally it appears after a landmark report by the national academy of sciences the only forensic assay, dna testing. they criticize severely, fingerprints, bite marks, tool marks on bullet, all kind of other forensic assays that haven't been adequately validated and some may not be validatable. finally now we have a national commission with national institute of standards and technology and the department of justice and we're going to have 30 people appointed to that starting soon. so some progress has been made but the real significance of dna, it's been a learning moment for the criminal justice system and we realize how riddled with error this system is in the first place. >> it feels like, if kirk didn't do it and was convicted on it, the problem isn't just missing dna test. it was all of these other pieces. i also heard you say the intractable problem of race. we can't talk about death penalty without talking about race. i want to make clear how important that particular al kem i is. it's not that african-american america

, in science and research, in education. things that are important to power the economy. our focus has been on jobs first. let's get the economy in full gear. not put the brakes on it. which is what the republicans do. they've gotten austerity budget that according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office, will result in 750,000 fewer jobs bn i end of the year. so we say let's tackle the deficit in a smart way, get people back to work and reduce it over a steady period over a period of time and our comes to balance at the same time that the republicans' budget from last year comes into balance. >> on the issue of revenue, i believe your budget has about $200 billion more in revenue than senator murray's budget in the senate. why did you put that in there considering that republicans are so adverse to any new revenue? >> the budget we have in our democratic proposal. if you take it even together with the revenue from the fiscal cliff agreement, is still less total revenue, luke, than was embedded in the bipartisan simpson-bowles agreement. so we have less revenue proposed by that bipar
economy through education, job training, health care, and science and resedge. i yield myself an additional 30 seconds. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. scott: even with these additional investments, this is needed to put our economy back on a sustainable path because it's more than the simpson-bowles deficit reduction 10-year goal. the c.b.c. budget shows we can create jobs, invest in education, transportation, and research and avoid devastating health care cuts and achieve the 10-year simpson-bowles deficit reduction goal and i urge my colleagues to support the congressional black caucus budget. i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: for what purpose does the gentleman from georgia rise? >> i claim the time in opposition. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. broun: i want to comment my -- commend my friend mr. scott for bringing forward a budget on behalf of the congressional black caucus. i think it's important we have all sorts of options here on the floor to be able to discuss, i would note a couple of items that he conveniently left out, one is th
at a more appropriate age. it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> now to our politics lead. the so-called dream team that never happened. i know a lot of people who make their living predicting political outcomes but in the republican primaries last year i do not recall anyone seeing this coming. a unity ticket between two unlikely presidential hopefuls and it almost rocked the race to the white house. erin mcpike, hindsight is 20/20 but would this have really made a dent in the way the primaries went down last year? >> if you think about the general election which is what they're talking about, you know, democrats just devoted all of their time to researching and preparing for a mitt romney candidacy so it would have slowed them down. but for some voters out there this just might have been a dream that was too good to be true. >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> what if president obama had faced him and him in last year's election? who would be living here? during the republican primary, rick santorum and newt gingrich just couldn't see eye to eye

nutrition assistance because of sequester. national science grants cut, is,000 of them. 902 million cut from loans to our small businesses who are the job creators. and even 1 240*u f.b.i,000 f.b.d other law enforcement personnel. so, yes, i say to my friend who is not here -- who is leading the filibuster, the senator from kansas -- i hope he comes and shows up -- i hear him. i feel the pain he feels. i feel the pain he feels for a his state. i have a list that i won't bore you with that shows the cuts to my state. it is painful. but how do you solve it? not by amendment after amendment after amendment on a must-pass bill that the house has said, keep it simple or the government shuts down. not that way. but by turning to the democratic budget. where senator murray and the colleagues there have restored those cuts and they won't other ways to cut, better ways to cut, sensible ways to cut. so i call on my friends on the other side of the aisle, if you want to waste 10 hours, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 hours, it is your call. we will be here. but we are not going to put off the passage of the
in science and research and education, it more . an doubles the sequester cut it violates important commitments we've made to our seniors. it reopens the prescription drug doughnut hole so seniors with high health care costs will pay thousands more during the period of this budget. it turns medicare into a voucher program so seniors face the risk of rising health care costs. and finally, mr. chairman, it's based on this false idea that you can claim to balance the budget in 10 years when you claim also to be getting rid of obamacare when all they do is get rid of the benefits of obamacare. this reached the time of balance because they keep the affordable care act, obamacare. i urge my colleagues to reject this approach and to adopt the balanced democratic approach to dealing with these national challenges. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. the gentleman from wisconsin is recognized for 3 1/2 minutes. mr. ryan: i yield myself such time as i may consume. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. mr. ryan: mr. chairman, this budget is constructive. it reveals each side's

graders. the program's goal is to motivate these students to explore science, technology, engineering and math as they continue their education. military volunteers apply abstract principles to real-world situations by leading tours and giving lectures on the use of stem in different settings and careers. i'm sure that's a nice thing to happen. i'm sure that star base is -- it's nice that fifth graders are able to hear from members of the military. meanwhile, we can't deploy an aircraft carrier. with a war going on, a budget crisis at our doorstep, this is how we elect to spend our taxpayers' defense money. another example is $11.3 million in increase for the civil air program or c.a.p. c.a.p. is a volunteer organization that provides aerospace education to young people, runs a junior cadet program and assists when possible to providing emergency services. its members are hard working, we are grateful for their volunteerism. this year as in the past, the senate armed services committee authorized the president's request for c.a.p. funding. however, c.a.p. is an auxiliary and this shou

[applause] >> thank you. good morning, everyone. we have been at kaiser family foundation analyzing and tracking the affordable care act for many different perspectives and hiv has been a core part of what we do. so to begin i just want to start off with this, because this was president obama on world aids day in 2011 getting a pretty historic speech about the possibility of ending the aids epidemic at some point in our lifetime. and for those of us have been working in hiv for very long time this was quite a moment and it's a moment of opportunity and optimism that i want to start with. the reason president obama made that statement and those of us working in the field are hopeful is that we have a combination now of new scientific advances with existing interventions that together is scaled up could begin to turn the tide on the epidemic. we also have a national hiv strategy for the first
